I don't actually have a "disdain for children" and I guess I don't wear my CF status like a badge or anything...I think those stickers are a little silly (but the one on the right is hilarious!) but I would have one with just man, woman and dog stick figures, just to show that I'm proud of my family, too, as much as anyone with children is.

We don't do anything that would attract any kind of negative attention to our vehicles; we love them too much to make them the target for vandalism... Yes, I said love. Although they may not be anything special, we take very good care of them. Heck - we just did a 2,500 mile round trip to pick up the new truck from a dealership in Idaho!
At one time, DH and I joked about getting matching license plates that said "Godless" and "Heathen", but knew that it would only bring trouble.
I have enough time and money to dedicated to many hobbies, travel and personal interests. I'm in my early 40s and still understand fashion . Don't have middle-aged spread, creative stagnation, or kindercrap all over my house & garden. My mind is active and I enjoy staying well-informed about current events and new ideas. I speak very little about children. They're not the first topic when I open my mouth...
The Childfree lack of rust sign often makes you stand out even if you're not trying to.
I don't display my choice. Don't want to, don't need to - if someone asks they'll get a straight answer, but otherwise, just living my life is all the display I need. Lovely holidays, clothes devoid of sick stains, time to pursue a career and hobbies, cuddles with the cats...

I don't have "disdain for children." I actually just had this conversation with one of my best friends last night. He thought I hated kids, which isn't true. I dislike the vast majority because they're spoiled and bratty. I don't actively hate them, though. I love spending time with my favorite ones, and I love being able to hand them back when I'm through.
I don't feel a need to display my choices outwardly. If someone asks, I won't hide it, but I'm not going to make myself a martyr for the cause. My lifestyle does just fine in speaking for why I'm CF.

I was wondering how you all showed society your disdain for children.... or do you?
Not all the time. I don't feel the compulsive need to make society know me or my positions. Mostly I only bring the subject up if asked, or if in the presence of wannabe-child-spawners. Particularly annoying ones can tickle my troll instincts, at which point I rub it in their faces with abandon, but otherwise I don't make a big fuss out of it.
I have a "Child Free by Choice" sticker on my truck, along with a "Bad Religion" sticker so I often get accosted in parking lots.... and i totally dig it!
I never could understand the point of bumper stickers.
